Workshop Note

Hi Debby,
I'm glad you didn't mind my critique. Well, I tried a workshop: this is just to show some possibilities, not something I would post on TE. And I couldn't change much in the composition - that's a major decision at the moment when you shoot the image.
So here's what I did (tool was Photoshop)
The sky was dull, so I changed it completely. Selected all the sky and moved it to a different layer, inverted it, added lots of contrast and blended it in "screen" mode.
In a new layer, I created a simple blue color gradient as a new sky. Your inverted old sky now gives me white coulds on a clear blue sky. Still some minor cleanup at the tree edges - not perfect, there are still lots of white spots.
The front layer got sharpened, the grass a little more than the trees. Also added contrast and saturation here.
Finally, a little cropping at the left and top border, and a thin black frame - done.
What you can do when you're out there shooting: always use the highest quality available with your camera - except when you're really low on memory. Shoot intersting views from different angles, distances, formats. Later on your computer, you will be able to select the best shot. Then, I ask myself, why is it the best one? That's how I learn to shoot better images.
Cheers,
Oliver
